    Okay i have rooted s8 and running costum rom but i have problems with google apps. If i try to download something from playstore i get different errors like (490,491,403,505 and more) when im using chrome i get ssl errors. And other google apps like youtube is giving me network errors all the time.

    Things i have tried : cleaning Google Play services Cache, removing and re-adding google accounts. deleting hosts. file with root explorer. Cleaning cache in twrp. Re-flashing gapps. Re installing stock rom- with odin and smart switch (but stock rom crashes and reboots all time so im unable to use it) I also have tried all costum roms.

    Welcome to the forums. What ROM are you running?

    Edit: Which version of GApps did you use? Full, nano, micro?

    Sometimes one has to weight up the pro's and con's of rooting to remaining stock.

    I hope you find a work around solution.

    I used to jailbreak iPhone's but that's because Apple over restrict them out of the box Imo.

    I've personally for my wants and needs no need to do this on my s8.

    Rooting isn't as necessary as it used to be. Even though it adds features it also takes some away, like Samsung Pay is just one example.

    I agree.

    With jailbreaking an iPhone I lost apps such as SkyGo and other apps that detected it was JB and workarounds didn't work.

    Have you tried using the minimal possible gapps file? Does the ROM developer have a preferred type?

    Not too sure but i think i have some hardware problem, if i try recovery via odin my phone updates to 32% and then says erasing... and then it boots but everything crashes. Im able to use costum roms but i still get some crashes and google apps are not working well.

    I have tried to reinstall ROM via odin and via smart switch over 10 times. nothing i also have tried ALL costum roms for s8 and they work but google apps have network problems. I also have tried RE-PARTITION, NAND ERASE ALL, PHONE EFS CLEAR in odin but i cannot use stock rom bc it crashes and reboots all the time. Well i can use stock rom if i install TWRP but then google play wont download apps and i get network issues in chrome.

    Do you have insurance on your phone? If so I would take the hit with the deductible and get a new unit.

    Bummer... I've never rooted but if I ever did I would do it on an older device when I'm willing to take that sort of risk. From a performance perspective it doesn't make sense to root a fresh unit with high end specs.

    Were you using Odin as an Administrator? Sometimes that can make a difference.
